LaunchPad Pitch Competition Winner is Streamlining Surgery


When Ryan Young, MD/MBA ’21, sat in on a staff meeting during his anesthesiology rotation at a local hospital as a student, he didn’t expect to come away with an idea for a company. But after hearing the Perioperative Services director explain that the surgery duration forecasts they received from their electronic medical record system were only 30% accurate, Young knew there had to be a better way. Soon after that meeting, he founded Opollo Technologies, a fintech health care AI company. Their flagship product, the Opollo Ecosystem, is a cloud-based AI platform that learns from a wide range of health care data to optimize operating room scheduling in addition to providing a marketplace for health care facilities to sell the resulting vacancies to health insurance companies.
